The man behind CelebriGum had a little fun with the photos from Anderson's arrival at The Late Show With David Letterman last week.

The post starts out... "This is troubling on a couple of levels.

I've been informed by the FBI that these hitherto-unpublished CelebriGum photos of Anderson Cooper were discovered on Paula Broadwell's computer. While not "classified" in a military sense, they're confidential and highly sensitive. It's a serious security breach for CelebriGum."  Click here for the full post with more photos.

There were a few curious things about Friday's 360.

At the end of the first segment, concerning the Israel/Hamas conflict, Anderson had to explain that although a photo they put on the air previously was now found out to maybe have been staged. He stated emphatically that he is not taking sides, he's just trying to report the facts and get to the truth.

Later, at the start of 'KTH' Anderson said that they don't take the sides either Democratic or Republican "like other cable channels do" he just reports the facts. He then had another look at Rep. Rohrabacher's comments yesterday about President Obama lying, comments Rorhabacher was stepping away from today.

It made me wonder what kind of feedback Anderson has been getting, not just here at ATA but from all over including from his bosses. Two statements in one night about not taking sides and just reporting the facts?

The other curious thing were the upcoming stories teasers in the commercial breaks. One was about preventing a subway bomber and the other about Hostess bankruptcy. Neither story was covered and there wasn't a Bulletin. Perhaps all taken out to make room for a 'Breaking News" update from Sidner in Gaza, which broke apart quickly because the audio connection broke down.

However, there was still room for the Ridiculist. It was a pretty good Ridiculist about a "demonic" goat but wouldn't it have been more "newsy" to have the Bulletin instead?
